The crash occurred in the southbound lanes of the Interstate, south of Antioch Road shortly before 9 a.m. Friday.
Troopers say a 1995 Jeep Wrangler and a 2008 Mercedes-Benz E350 were both traveling southbound on Interstate 35. The Jeep was in the left lane when the driver lost control and veered to the right.
The Jeep's passenger door struck the front corner of the Mercedes-Benz, which was traveling in the next lane. The collision caused the Mercedes-Benz to spin and sent the Jeep into a guard rail off of the right shoulder. The Jeep's driver was ejected when the vehicle struck the guard rail. Both vehicles ended up on the left shoulder of the Interstate.
Troopers have identified the Jeep's driver as Dalainya D. Dauster, 44, of Kansas City, Missouri. She was pronounced dead at the scene. She was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
The driver of the Mercedes-Benz was wearing a seat belt and was not injured in the crash.
Troopers continue to investigate.
